This group can consist of early learning programs, family members, school district officials, school board members, teachers and other school personnel, policy makers and staff, business and civic leaders, media, public and private foundations, faith-based community representatives from family or child serving organizations and anyone who is interested in supporting early and school-age care and education!

Help families make good early learning choices for their children, while building family demand for quality early education, and support families to take action on behalf of their children.
Act as a resource
Act as a resource for early childhood education to promote OCDEL programs, such as Keystone STARS, through activities such as early learning events, early learning activities and/or other programs within a community which focus on quality early education programs and access to early learning opportunities.
Provide transition support
